Pantech Breakout

Ladies and gentlemen, we've got a new horse in Verizon's 4G LTE stables. Welcome the Pantech Breakout (which we first told you about nearly a month ago) -- a 4-inch candybar smartphone that bosts Android 2.3, a 1GHz processor, 5MP camera (VGA front-facing camera), Wifi b/g/n, the aforementioned 4G LTE data -- and an affordable price tag. Available in stores and online starting Sept. 22, the Breakout is going for just $99.99 after two-year contract and $50 rebate. Voice and data plans start at $39.99 and $30 (for 2GB), respectively.

I don't think that's a bad deal at all.

Not bat at all. Obviously not a powerhouse, but it brings new meaning to "entry level" android phones.

sadly it has the same specs as the charge(minus the screen)Just shows how overpriced phones are when this can be 100 and the charge is 299.

Not really sure what to expect. The Pantech Crux and the Jest on Verizon were both terrible devices so not so sure that this will be a good phone...inexpensive yes, but in my experience there is usually a reason for them being cheap.

You will spend $2000 over your 24 months for the smallest Verizon data plan and 10 texts a day.

For 17 cents more a day you can get a top-end phone instead of a low-end phone. This is something you will use every day, all day for the next 730 days.

Life is short. If you are going to spend two grand on a phone, get the one you want.

So does no news mean the Stratosphere is definitely not coming the same day?
